Paper Dolls Challenge #36

This weeks Paper Dolls Challenge is from my friend Jen! She picked an adorable color combo from a quilt she recently purchased! The colors are just too fun!  I made this card at our Stamping Away weekend because we had a little sneak peek of Jen's colors!  :)

Here is my card...

The embossed background is from a new Sizzix Folder (Country Foliage), courtesy of Amy's enabling!  I love this one!  I am pretty sure you are going to see me use it...a lot!!  Those leaves are also from a Sizzix die!  I really like the small leaves!  Those rolled roses are MFT dies!  LOVE!  And this sentiment is from the new Paper Smooches set!  This really is a great set to have if you don't already!  Lots of great sentiments in such fun fonts!
